Spit out your gum before you meet Nicole Miller!

A few minutes with Nicole Miller and you quickly learn she dislikes typos (tweet typos really irk her), restricts gum-chewing in the office and is an avid environmentalist who recycles EVERYTHING that’s recyclable.

Perhaps the secret to a successful business came in her response to being asked what she would’ve done differently when she opened her first store, knowing what she knows now. Miller  indicated to our Leigh Macdonald that she “might have fired a few people sooner.”

Oh SASSY! We like!

This all went down as shoppers got their fashion and philanthropy on at  Miller’s newly-renovated store in Tysons Galleria.Among the crowd, DC Housewives Lynda Erkiletian and Mary Amons.  15% of the event’s proceeds went to a pediatric hospital right here in D.C.–Children’s National Medical Center

Other notable guests attending: Kate Michael and Aba Bonney Kwawu of The Aba Agency.  Check out coverage of the event on the WUSA Morning Show here.
